Minute by Minute

For anyone who knows me, it came as no surprise that for our wedding week I mapped out a minute by minute timeline. While I know timelines can be intimidating, I always encourage brides to make one. The process of creating one is more important – in some ways – than the timeline itself. Going […]

Wedding Week

I know I’ve talked about this on the blog before, but after a busy September filled with a lot of brides, I think it’s time to revisit it. The week of a wedding is stressful, emotional, and busy. It can get overwhelming. Your vendors have last minute questions. A lot of payments are due. There […]

It’s like rain on your wedding day

Not sure if we should dive into how ironic it would be, BUT, it is something to be aware of. A wedding I attended recently was held in a beautiful tent on the coast. The couple got lucky – the rain held off and the breeze wasn’t bad, but it got me thinking of weather […]

Center of Attention

Of all of the details of your wedding day, center pieces often become the center of attention. Throughout the day, your guests are moving, greeting, dancing.

As with anything, though, there are some things that are just outside of your control. In this case, it’s the weather. While the […]

Bach Bash

This week I’ve been helping a MOH finalize details for her older sister’s bachelorette party. The MOH is such a sweet girl, but hasn’t been to many bachelorette parties yet since she hasn’t reached her “wedding season” yet. We were talking about games, so I thought I’d share a post about some easy bachelorette party […]

Bachelorette Bash

These days, Bachelorette parties have escalated from an nice dinner in the city to full blown 5 day escapes. It’s a lot of balance – especially considering that friends outside of the bridal party are typically invited to the event. For the bridesmaids planning such a weekend, it’s a lot of logistics, feelings, and details […]
